Virus Contained Within a Thread

Passing this information along...... A warning to be careful of message boards that allow html scripting as viruses can be embedded within them.

Just today on Adam's web board (zx12.org) a thread was started that contained a virus. The thread did not have any attachements. As soon as the thread is opened your computer is attacked. Luckily on our home PC Norton immediately picked it up and took care of it.

There is no way of knowing that it contains a virus until you open it. The thread was titled in the regards to something about fuel mileage.

Re: Virus Contained Within a Thread

..which is why it's a bad idea for ANY site to allow HTML in posts/signatures/etc...
